(18 Episodes) "Love On The Line," is a 1947 Teenage/Juvenile Soap Opera. Little is known of this 1947 soap opera. Each episode is 3-4 minutes long, each 'Peggy and Paul's' storyline sounding much more like an "Archie & Betty" type romance/comedy than a soap opera. ** These 3-4 minute episodes might even lead one to believe this could even possibly be a Teenage Soap Opera Parody ... anyone out there know?

(from Wikipedia) Chickenman was created in 1966 by Dick Orkin, at the time a production director at WCFL in Chicago. WCFL's Program Director, Ken Draper, was inspired by the success of the Batman TV show, and asked Orkin to put together a two-and-a-half-minute comedy feature with a similarly "camp" sensibility. In a 1996 article, Orkin explained, "I was never clear about what 'camp' meant, except that I guess it had something to do with the sacredness of absolute values that,... favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite ( 2 reviews ) Topics: radio, old time radio, otr, chickenman, chicken, man, manchicken
